Mr. Balch took no his cudgels ngnin
and. eve.lnimed: "This evidence shows

f i ne iiermans lost men prodigally in attempting the passage ot
the Somme before this front. KcutcrV c..rresondent. describing
the British evacuation of the territory ea-t of the Somme, wires:
"The titanic struggle continues with scarcely a lull, or an abatement
in iritensity, although the enemy's artillery shows a tendency to
decrease in volume. The manner in which our guns, tanks and
transports were withdrawn amounts to a marvellous feat, possible
only under perfect discipline. N
TRAPPED EAGER HUNS
"After . falling bjek. across the Somnie. the engineers cleared
away all the bridges except one, which was so commanded by our
guns as to be more advantageous standing. Toward this bridge
the German columns convened and into thU mass the British shells
were rained. The German' losses at this point were prodigious,
while all along the river the Teuton efforts t.. secure a passage cost
th'erh lives by the thousands."
t Earlier in the day. the Reuter correspondent described the Ger
man slaughter as unprecedented, being estimated by prisoners as
between one-third and one-half of the divisions engaged.
"Organizing the attack on an unprecedented scale of magni
tude," says Renter., ''tbe German commanders brought tip vast
bodies of troops anfl vast masses of supplies close to the front line
of battle. All the roads to tbe rear of the German advance yester
day were blocked by columns of troops, guns and transport vehicles
l and men furnishing easy tafgets
made deadly play right into the ma.
"A rough estimate of the casualties inflicted on the enemy vary
from thirty to fifty percent of all the enemy divisions identified.
"The figures are given for what they are worth and are based
friainly on statements from prisoners."
